The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and the Salvation Army are offering help to those who witnessed a double homicide in Conception Bay South two weeks ago.

Brian Dawe shot and killed Juliane Hibbs and her fiancé Vince Dillon before turning a gun on himself Oct. 15.

Inspector Barry Constantine — who is with the RNC's criminal investigation division — says more than 20 people witnessed the murders.

All of them have been invited to attend counselling sessions.

"With the level of violence that played out in this situation and the circumstances that these people were witness to, we felt that it was important to not forget about these people and reach out to them," said Constantine.

Constantine said he doesn't believe any children witnessed the tragedy.
